Eighty Seven

Read by TriciaG

(4.7 stars; 164 reviews)

Twelve-year-old Winter Kelland is an orphan indentured to a cold, harsh farming couple. His one bright spot is eight-year-old Vine, a neighbor girl who believes he can do great things if he can get an education. Win finally has enough of the hard life at the farm and runs away. But he discovers that even his poor life at the farm was desirable to being a half-starved tramp. At his lowest, he encounters a prickly spinster who learns to follow God's command, "He that honoreth Him hath mercy on the poor." The title, Eighty Seven, refers to the year Vine will turn 22 years old and will have a grand birthday feast, and is a tribute to her Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle (CLSC) graduating class of 1887.

Another quality read by ?Pansy. Thanks to TriciaG who keeps them coming!

Maybe the best

(5 stars)

I've read many Pansy books, but this one is exceptional. It touches on so many human states and emotions that touch many lives and situations.

Beautiful Story

It is a beautiful story of God's care of an orphan boy Winter and his friend Vine who were suddenly separated.

contemplating whether to listen?

(5 stars)

Such an amazing book! I’ve listened to almost all of Grace Livingston Hill’s books, but didn’t discover her aunt till now. I enjoyed how Isabella Alden rose above the ‘conventional’ love story, and created a plot similar, yet extremely un-similar to every other romance novel. I’m a writer myself, and books this good both inspire me and discourage me. Any other writers feel like that? If you’re contemplating whether or not to read this book, my advice is to grab a coffee, snuggle up somewhere cozy, and hit play.
